On Thursday 9 June, Ormiston College hosted the Bayside District Readers Cup competition in the CLI. Fielding two teams – Year 5/6 and Year 7/8, the College was very well represented and the students certainly did their school proud.
The Junior School team, managed by Ms Amanda Bowker, placed a very competitive Second on the day, while the Middle School team, managed by Miss Peta Egan and Miss Catherine Herzig were awarded Third place in their section of the competition. This was an excellent effort from both teams, especially considering that the students had to read at least five specific books, study them closely and then answer a series of questions over two hours; all this in addition to their school work and other co-curricular commitments.
Thanks must go to Mrs Deborah Ponting and the CLI staff for their outstanding organisation of the competition which included over 15 schools from our local region.
It was a terrific day and congratulations to our students!
